QR25DE Problems and malfunctions

  1. Stretching of the timing chain.
  2. Oil leak and high oil consumption.
  3. Vibrations.
  4. Overheating.

The most common mechanical problem of aluminum motors QR20DE- QR25DE is associated with overheating. Causes by the failure of the cooling pump. The result of overheating (even micro overheating) is a “gap” of the head unit. Micron leaks allow antifreeze to get into the combustion chamber.

Thus oxygen sensors tend to register a rich composite fuel. Some problems when starting the engine, stall, speed floating.

The solution of this problem is rather expensive. Replacing the cylinder head gasket may cost some money. Grinding head and the block, the new gasket head bolts. To avoid this it is necessary to monitor the condition of the radiator honeycombs inside and out, monitor the temperature of the motor, monitor the level of antifreeze and its color. Ensure proper operation of the cooling fans. Or simply visit regularly the diagnostics, where all the specialists will check and fix any problems found.
